    (Picture attached) As I type this,

    I am quite upset at the moment... At the start of this year, I met a wonderful person on experienceproject when I was in the worst stages of my depression. She was the only one on this website that really offered to help. Due to my memory, I frequently forgot about this place...

    In November 2001, I suffered a breakdown

    and was diagnosed with PTSD and Major Depression. My depression was treatment-resistant; fortunately about 10 years later I found an effective antidepressant. I say fortunately, because I know some struggle much longer. There were days when hope was so far gone and the psychic...

    I'm just very sad for too many reasons

    that aren't even valid reasons which just makes me more sad and I kind if just want to curl up in a ball and die.

    Happiness Is A Choice? Bullshit.......

    If you honestly deal with depression, you know that you "don't have a choice". People who say that happiness is a choice, don't deal with depression. I'm sorry but it's been proven that chemicals off-balanced in the brain, contribute to depression. Telling a person who has been...

    If you dont have depression,

    dont even bother telling me life gets better. The fact is, your living a happy life, and you dont understand what I am going through. If you dont have depression, you will never understand.

    Nothing traumatic has ever happened to me.

    I've been picked on here and there but nothin too major. I don't understand why I feel this way. And I hate it. I feel like such an attention seeker. I'm so confused why I feel this way and I'm sick and tired of it.

    Telling me I can't be sad

    because someone has it harder in life than I do, is like saying someone can't be happy because someone has a better life than them.

    Today's already been horrible.

    I woke up sobbing my face off, then I ordered some food via phone call, but I made it way more complicated than it really was, and as soon as I hung up, I started crying.. Why did I even get up this morning? :c I feel like a disappointment to everyone lately.

    I can't tell the difference between my rational

    thoughts and my depressive thoughts. Nothing seems to make sense, everything and everyone is negative. My thoughts are sad and very rarely happy. Stuck in my head all day and can't seem to escape :/ want to get better but nothing seems to work.

    I hate it when someone says "at least you have

    clothes on your back" or when they better their/others bad experiences over yours it puts things into perspective for about a minute then you go back to feeling like sh*t, it's almost getting shrugged like off because you're not in a worse place.

    Depression is not easy.

    Never easy. Depression, loneliness, anxiety, fear, procrastination - whatever evil it may be called. But one thing is for sure, it is debilitating. It is heart-wrenching. It is spirit-breaking, even mind-freezing. It sucked the spirit of life in you. Makes you feel both hopeless...

    I'm just tired of feeling depressed.

    Sometimes at night I cry myself to sleep thinking "god what did I do to deserve this?" I just don't want to wake up no more. I can't do it anymore. I feel myself drowning into depression each day, it's hard seeing people move on with they're lives when I can't.
